Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be completed notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, since anytime a particular page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a resource-intensive website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those based on famous web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS server is fully functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to reduce the load even if you manage content-heavy script-driven portals with numerous viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-built one, and you will observe the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for any website that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users open your site, so you will notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very large site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to increase the speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
